The offending shop in the recent Etsy scandal remains open this morning while Etsy investigates. As put in this forum post:
(Yes this has now been raging for at least 2 days to my knowledge.)I’d have thought an ‘investigation’ into this could have been carried out in about 3 minutes – read the sentences, decide they’re against Etsy TOU, investigation completed.But clearly I know nothing and Etsy must be snooping around with magnifing glasses, bagging n tagging evidence, interviewing people of interest….
Or else they are going through the process of – send us a tutorial on how you made these shirts along with photos…
UPDATE: ETSY SWEEP: Sometime on 10/25/2013, Etsy finally closed down this offending shop. And they also DELETED all of the forum threads discussing the subject.
